Actually I would say the vikings were not from Finland but from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and parts of North Germany. One hint to this can be found in the Finnish language which is completely different from Swedish/Norwegian/Danish. The last 3 have similarities and speakers of one can often understand and have a basic conversation with someone of the other, however Finnish has almost no common ground with the other scandinavian languages at all.

^^ The Finnish language has assimilated some Swedish words, but apart from that it's a completely different language, true. Nevertheless there are many similarities regardless of the language, like... the feminism we were talking about.

Okay, while in Finland and talking about Ryanair...

The ugliest Finnish terminal, Tampere Pirkkala 2 will finally be rebuilt and renovated. Reluctantly and after very long lasting negotiations the modest € 3 million has been granted and works will start in 2014. Kind of shame, but better late than never.

LPP airport (Lappeenranta) makes efforts to become privatised in order to triple the amount of flights as "St. Petersburg West". Hard talks ahead.

^^ It's an off-topic apparently, but Finnish doesn't belong to Slavic language group (ne govorim po Russki). Finnish has much in common with Estonian and both belong to the same group as Hungarian, albeit with no common words with the latter one.

Saippuakauppias

Angry Thread Drift!

How the hell does a thread about Ryanair end up discussing the Vikings and the Finnish language? Come on Mods! This thread should be closed and consigned to the bowels of the archives. A new thread can always be opened when there is some real news to post.

Perhaps children shouldn't be seated under overhead bins?

In 2010 they had a 10kg limit now everyone wants a higher carry on limit. Seems to me you can't win.

Its a difficult one but was once absued when travelling on a US flight becasue I wouldn't help a lady who dragged her bags on to put it in o/head...............they looked heavy. Asked if she would cover my hospital bills if hurt my back.

2 other passengers lifted it but really was ott and F/A said too heavy has to go below to outrage.
Captain got involved as heard the lady swearing and suggested she take another flight. Hate to think what would have happened if it had come down.

Maybe time for electronic locks that only open after landing when plane has shut down.

Do Ryanair now have effectively complete control of Beziers as sole scheduled airline or does Beziers have other substantial income streams ?

Update - should have made clear that Flybe have dropped their Southampton-Beziers route

Well it seems Liverpool has gone down from 6 to 4 a/c from what I can tell from the new schedules. Maybe Bristol is where they have gone to then.

I'm pleased to say that East Midlands is still at 8 a/c in August 2014.

And Stansted's increases are here now too.

I'm trying to work out whether a summer seasonal route that ran in summer 2013 will return in 2014. I note that trying to make a booking returns the standard 'full/not yet loaded' message. Trying to find something under flight timetable on the FR website returns an 'undefined' message.

I don't really want to go into details of individual routes so as to keep it general. I also know wikipedia is unreliable, FR tend not to actively publicise if a route is being suspended, and not putting a route on sale until late can be a negotiation tactic for more marketing support.

So at what point can one make a definitive call on routes operating or not for S14 ?

According to RYR, at the begining lf 2014, the SS14 schedule will be completed. Several cuts in Spain network so far.

Regards.

Its a gorgeous little airport.

I read this week that FR want to cut back their operations at Baden-Baden, blaming it on the German government air tax. Funny then that they announced SNN to Berlin and Memmingen and now the 2 new routes from Bremen.

FR to cut routes from Leipzig with only London confirmed to continue. Magdeburg-Cochstedt is also being dropped for Summer 2014. Funny that FR can not establish themselves in central Germany.

Is it that or is it lack of airframes and a need to use them elsewhere more profitably ?
